Our lives are becoming increasingly digital – and the topic of IT security is thus becoming more and more important. The new format “Nachgehackt – der Podcast zu IT-Security”, produced at the Ruhr University Bochum, wants to sensitize, inform and give tips for digital practice. The first episode is now available.
IT security concerns everyone. But for many people, the topic still seems daunting. Often they say: it’s all too complex, too complicated, too incomprehensible. The “Nachgehackt” format wants to change that. In the podcast, topics and areas related to IT security are presented in an easily accessible and entertaining way. The host Henrik Hanses interviews experts and other exciting guests and explores the world of IT security together with the listeners. In the process, the “self-confessed IT layman” sometimes asks questions if he doesn’t understand something. Since July 26, “Nachgehackt” is now on the air, every 14 days there is a new episode. To kick things off, Henrik Hanses talks to Prof. Dr. Christof Paar of the Max Planck Institute for Security and Privacy in Bochum about how cryptography determines our everyday lives and how important privacy is in the digital world.
